Out Of Nothing Comes Me

Everest sized inside.
Regenerative, Adaptable,
Fine-Tuned, Tunnel-visioned
and in Life’s Prime.
Ambitious for Experience,
Emotions Playful but Leashed.
Survivalistic, Knowledge-Bound,
scaling Library walls Daily.
Appetites Vast yet Controlled,
a Seeker not a Follower,
a Tribesman only by Name.
A Reclusive, Energetic
Pupil of the Senses.
Self-Sufficient, Born Equipped,
and Adequately Armed
to see the Task through.
A Documenter of the Mind,
a Surveyor of the Heart,
and a Map-Maker
of the Human Soul.
